Fresno's Only Continuing Care Retirement Community Unveils New Memory Support Residences
The Terraces at San Joaquin Gardens Offers Sneak Peek at Phase II of $120 Million Renovation
As Fresno’s only continuing care retirement community, The Terraces is committed to bringing quality memory care to the area. The Grove features 24 private rooms, and is the only memory care service in the area based around person-centered care. This includes building relationships with residents and using insight from those relationships to shape individual care plans as part of the Best Friends™ Approach. A team of qualified caregivers focuses on sensory-stimulating and reminiscing activities along with exercise, wellness, music and art.
The Grove is the first completed portion of Phase II of The Terraces’ transformation. The remaining projects will include a new underground parking garage, commons building, residential living apartments, skilled nursing suites and office space. Phase I of construction featured 47 new residential living apartments, a bistro, pool, fitness center and spa.
The Terraces has been recognized this year for providing advanced care with a five-star national rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service. The rating is based on scores in health inspections, employee time spent with residents and clinical quality measures. The Terraces is also accredited by the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission, a designation awarded to CCRCs that demonstrate excellence in resident life, health and wellness, as well as governance and administration, financial resources and disclosure.
